25

Alcatraz

Where & When: Midseason Mondays at 9 on Fox

Why it's Awesome: Not only is there already a ton of buzz surrounding JJ Abrams latest pet project, featuring LOST's Jorge Garcia and Jurassic Park's Sam Neill, but the inclusion of time-traveling prison breaks and...you know what? I'll stop there. That's awesome enough.

The Playboy Club

Where & When: Fall Mondays at 10 on NBC

Why it's Awesome: Jumping onto the period drama bandwagon, anything with Amber Heard as a Playboy bunny should be enough to perk our ears up, let alone the unusually mature and risque drama for NBC.

Falling Skies

Where & When: Sunday, June 19th on TNT

Why it's Awesome: If you haven't been following this, you should. Something of a cross between The Walking Dead and an alien invasion, what we've seen of Falling Skies is extremely promising, with lots of despair and alien action to satisfy nerds and drama hounds of all ilk.

Whitney

Where & When: Fall Thursdays at 9:30 on NBC

Why it's Awesome: Don't let the sitcom-y premise fool you. Whitney Cummings lives up to the name and brings plenty of sexy to her incisive and off-color relationship humor. Don't believe us? After the trailer, check out her stand-up special Money Shot. Yeah. She milks the name.

The Finder

Where & When: Midseason Thursdays at 9 on FOX

Why it's Awesome: Finders spins off from the character's initial appearance on Bones, and while we don't yet have a proper trailer, the concept and presence of Michael Clarke Duncan in a regular TV role certainly means we'll find our way to the TV come this series' debut.

Ringer

Where & When: Fall Tuesdays at 9 on The CW

Why it's Awesome: We loves us some Sarah Michelle Gellar, especially when she's back to the network that housed Buffy. But we suppose all the twin-switching drama, mob ties and Ioan Gruffudd are equally enticing as well. Buffy is totally boning Mr. Fantastic.

Once Upon a Time

Where & When: Fall Sundays at 8 on ABC

Why it's Awesome: Because we always love watching Big Love star Ginnifer Goodwin and Stargate Universe's Robert Carlyle, even if the premise seems tonally close to NBC's Grimm. Hey, fairy tales are in! Judge for yourself.

The New Girl

Where & When: Fall Tuesdays at 9 on FOX

Why it's Awesome: Whether or not you want to punch her in her darling indie face, color us highly intrigued by having the prospect of yet another Deschanel sister on the FOX network. Don't tell Emily, but Zooey's prettier anyway.

H8R

Where & When: Fall Wednesdays at 8 on The CW

Why it's Awesome: Hosted by Mario Lopez, this reality series gives regular folk a chance to tell celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Snooki just how much we hate them, and why! And sure, the more vicious barbs will more likely be converted by episodes' end, but any due hatred for Snooki should prove richly cathartic.

Napoleon Dynamite

Where & When: Midseason Sundays at 8:30 on FOX

Why it's Awesome: Give it a chance! Love or hate Napoleon Dynamite, you have to admit there's something oddly charming and apropos to the character in the below trailer. Not to mention the entire cast of the film returns to voice their roles!

Charlie's Angels

Where & When: Thursdays at 8pm on ABC

Why it's Awesome: Don't let the reboot factor or girl power scare you off, ABC will finally allow us to take the Angels seriously with an emphasis on action without losing the sexy "jiggle TV" we know and love. Minka Kelly, yours is an altar at which we worship.

Smash

Where & When: Midseason on NBC

Why it's Awesome: Think of it like Glee, without any of that pesky high school drama. Instead, get ready for all-adult drama as newcomer Katharine McPhee vies for the lead role in a Broadway production under the thumb of FlashForward's Jack Davenport, as well as Debra Messing and Angelica Huston!

Apartment 23

Where & When: Midseason Tuesdays at 9:30 on ABC

Why it's Awesome: For one, we love Krysten Ritter. And as caricature of New York living though she may be, we love the idea of her BFF James Van Der Beek finally shedding the Dawson sadface for some real acting: playing himself.

Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea

Where & When: Midseason on NBC

Why it's Awesome: It's about time Laura Prepon got some steady work since That '70s Show. Plus, playing an analogue of the lush, oversexed young Chelsea Handler? Through in Rescue Me's Lenny Clarke as her father, and you've officially got our attention.

Allen Gregory

Where & When: Sundays at 8:30 this Fall on FOX

Why it's Awesome: Produced and voiced by Jonah Hill, this animated series about a pretentious seven-year-old entering elementary school with two dads is a refreshing change from the usual Seth MacFarlane nuclear family fare.

Free Agents

Where & When: Fall Wednesdays at 8:30 on NBC

Why it's Awesome: Remaking the original UK series with Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) reprising his role, we always trust Hank Azaria, especially to lampoon the Agenting industry after his many years in showbiz. Did we mention Anthony Stewart Head?

Grimm

Where & When: Fall Fridays at 9 on NBC

Why it's Awesome: This one needs a bit of love, starting its run opposite Chuck on Friday nights, but who doesn't like the idea of a procedural detective series set in a world where Grimm's fairy tale characters come to life?

Person of Interest

Where & When: Fall Thursdays at 9 on CB

Why it's Awesome: We don't even care what it's about. It's a collaboration between Jonathan Nolan and JJ Abrams, and stars Ben Linus and Jesus. And that has made all the difference.

Torchwood: Miracle Day

Where & When: July 8th on Starz

Why it's Awesome: BECAUSE IT'S TORCHWOOD. IN AMERICA. But seriously, fan trepidation aside, we're excited at the prospect of a larger budget for Captain Jack and co. as they invade the States and investigate the creepy concept of why people on Earth suddenly stop dying. Development has been pretty hush-hush thus far, as seen in the miraculously vague teaser below...

The River

Where & When: Midseason on ABC

Why it's Awesome: Because Bruce Greenwood is awesome in everything? This one flew in pretty low under the radar, but the prospect of an Amazon-based mystery horror drama would set tongues wagging if we weren't afraid of some rain forest creature ripping it out.

Pan Am

Where & When: Fall Sundays at 10 on ABC

Why it's Awesome: Adding the starpower of Christina Ricci to the period drama goodness of Mad Men, Pan Am taxis over a dash of Catch Me If You Can to get our interest soaring for the skies.

Hell on Wheels

Where & When: Fall 2011 on AMC

Why it's Awesome: Has AMC ever led us astray? Well okay, so long as we pretend Rubicon never happened. But still! A badass western set against the development of the transcontinental railroad on AMC! Has sauce ever been more awesome?

Up All Night

Where & When: Fall Wednesdays at 8 on NBC

Why it's Awesome: Because we missed Will Arnett and Christina Applegate on regular TV, and we're pretending both Running Wilde and Samantha Who never happened. And while the young couple/family premise seems everywhere these days, the presence of Maya Rudolph and the mockumentary feel lends some serious steam to this baby.

Awake

Where & When: Midseason on NBC

Why it's Awesome: Formerly titled REM, this "Inception-style" thriller stars the always-awesome Jason Isaacs hopping between realities as he struggles to determine the truth behind whether he lost his son or his wife in a car accident. Our money's on him being dead all along. What a tweest!

Terra Nova

Where & When: Fall Mondays at 8 on FOX

Why it's Awesome: The buzz for this high-concept (and expensive!) sci-fi epic couldn't be higher, especially with Stephen Spielberg's name attached and the presence of Avatar's Stephen Lang. Plus? F$%king DINOSAURS. Watch. Do that.
